Government spokesman: Greece is not intimidated by Erdogan – Na…

The government representative commented on Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s speech in New York, noting that Greece is not intimidated, not intimidated “and obviously not tarnished by the nonsense from the non-existent things that were said from the floor of the (UN) general assembly yesterday“.

At the same time, he emphasized that the Turkish president made an unprecedented attempt to spread fake news, complete distortion of reality and vulgar propaganda, with completely unsubstantiated claims contrary to what is really happening.

“What is really happening is that Turkey is systematically violating international treaties that it has signed, using refugees and immigrants as tools, giving backs – to say the least, to smugglers who put people on boats and their lives are at risk , in contrast to the Greek state that saves human lives and that guards the borders of Greece and Europe as it should,” noted Mr. Oikonomou.

He also recalled that Erdogan spoke at the UN in an unfavorable context where:

“We have lifted the arms embargo to Cyprus, “and the Turks are still waiting”.

There are constant statements by officials that borders, national sovereignty, and international treaties must be absolutely respected.

The geopolitical and geostrategic power of our country is constantly being upgraded, a fact “that worries the other side”.

The government representative called on the official opposition to reflect after yesterday’s speech by Erdogan and also the developments with the NGO that recognized that the refugees in Evros were not on Greek territory.

He called on SYRIZA to “redefine its coordinates” on these issues as while we are in a very difficult political scene internally and there is toxicity, limits must be set and the propaganda of foreign forces must not be adopted.

“There must be limits when instead of opposing the government, you oppose your country by adopting arguments, propaganda, positions, which emit forces alien to Greece and which turn out at the end of the day to be false and bogus.”
